I love a great sunset. When I take the time to stop and watch the sun fall, I get this wonderful sense of calm and completeness. It is as if I have done all that I could on this day. But somehow, in my busy life as I rush from place to place, I rarely take the time to embrace the calm a sunset brings. So I take pictures when I see one, and enjoy them again later.
This one was taken on the West Coast of Oahu, November, 2011. It was one of the last nights of the trip, so not only was there a sense of calm, but also a sense of sadness as the trip was winding down.
